And so this week’s resignation of Sir Ivan Rogers, Britain’s ambassador to the EU, has been identified as marking that moment.

Giving fuel to the PM’s critics, he walked out of his job in a huff, launching an intemperate broadside against Mrs May, whom he accused of ‘muddled thinking’ on Brexit.

Its accompanying cover story can only be described as an unscrupulous, unsubtle and partisan hatchet job.
