Hi,

I have no idea what would this phrase mean. Could anyone please clarify it for me?


Thanks

I take it to mean that it is not a matter of if it will happen but a matter of when it will happen.

It means something is inevitable. There's no point discussing if it's going to happen; we just have to decide what to do when​ it happens.
