The moment Max Hastings realised Remain had lost the Brexit referendum

'The moment I despaired of the Remain cause during the 2016 referendum campaign came when, in a conversation with George Osborne, I urged him to hold out some scintilla of hope to the many people distressed by immigration levels. “I think we should leave that to Ukip”, he said primly. But what about raising the possibility of revisiting the ECHR? The chancellor responded that to fly any such kite “would set a very poor example to countries such as Belarus”. I came home and transferred my little all into US dollars.'
