Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “come to a head“ and its meaning is “if something comes to a head, it reaches a critical point/state where you have to take action to deal with it; reach a crisis, come to a climax, reach a critical point”.
Example Sentence: A key source of tension this time has been Jewish settlement in the east of Jerusalem… The issue came to a head in the climax of a decades-long attempt by Jewish groups to use the courts to evict Palestinian residents from Sheikh Jarrah, which lies at the heart of East Jerusalem.
