: Hi,

: There's saying that I heard a while ago, for some reason I thought it was 'brought to brook' perhaps a military term, to force your enemy into a confrontation - or, say, somebody an issue. This isn't the expression I was looking for (it doesn't exist), but I feel it has a 'watery feel'. Can anyone help?

: Many thanks in advance

: Steve

"Bring to a head" perhaps? That would be (on board ship anyway) somewhat watery.... ;-)
