For many years, Bill O'Reilly has been one of the leading voices of Fox News in the US.

The ultra-conservative uh... you could say "news"... channel has hosted O'Reilly's programme for several years and turned Bill O'Reilly into a household name in the States. He's now become a byword for blow-hard, over-the-top Republican commentators that basically shout until they get their way. Like children, basically.

This'll give you an idea. Here he is with Stephen Colbert, who basically took Bill O'Reilly's schtick and ran with it.

Anyway, during a recent segment in his programme about Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders' healthcare plan, Bill O'Reilly made a statement that sent fear into the hearts of Irish men and women. "If Bernie Sanders gets elected president, I’m fleeing, I’m going to Ireland. And they already know it."

Of course, he's going to love it here. What with our ridiculously strict gun control, marriage equality, the Medical Card system and social healthcare, O'Reilly's going to have great craic in Ireland.

Or, y'know, maybe not. Of course, this is nothing new. When Barack Obama was originally elected US President, dozens of right-wing commentators claimed they'd move to Canada. Which, like us, has ridiculously strict gun controls, social healthcare and was the fourth country in the world to legalise gay marriage.
