The CAP is no longer the favoured whipping boy of Eurosceptics, having been reformed considerably by Franz Fischler in late 90s.

Price supports and quotas are all gone. There are no butter mountains or wine lakes and the prices of EU goods are close to those on world markets.

Instead, what you basically have is relatively large amounts of money being given to people on a per-hectare basis once they farm it.

While this is better than the CAP of the 90s, it is still pretty problematic. Why not give subsidies to people to run sweet shops? Or practice basket weaving?

Interestingly enough agriculture and fisheries is the only area of policy where Brexiteers can credibly claim they have a better policy alternative. Not that the referendum was fought on that basis!

It's a chartered ferry and only for the summer
Port of Cork said "the option for freight carriers to bypass the UK land bridge will be seen as very attractive as Brexit uncertainty continues. We have no doubt that both exporters and importers will make this a viable service."

I though it operated every year for the last 5-6 years?

Eh, no. BrittanyFerries: "We believe this will be the first time there has been a ferry service linking Ireland and Spain."

He said that Vardakar "worked here as a young man". Did Varadkar work in the EU structure - is that publicised anywhere?

TheJournal - Farage brands Varadkar a 'European unionist' as he attacks Irish relationship with EU

I never knew that Varadkar was such an EU federalist and groomed to be a leader!
Varadkar began his political career as an active member of YoungFineGael in the 1990s. He was vice-president of the European People's Party's youth wing and participated in the Washington-Ireland Programme that grooms potential future leaders.

The ironies never end with Farage. Last week he was saying another referendum may be needed in the UK but today he chides Ireland for reruns, whilst ignoring that 2016 was a second vote on the European project!
