diectors club


Explanation:
I have heard this expression in English, it is not used for covering tax evasions (or maybe it is and my belief in the goodness of all mankind let me down once more), but refers to an exclusive circle of people (directors), who in the club talk a lot and nothing else much happens. It's more of a flippant term for a club, that doesn't seem to be doing anything useful.
