George Monbiot - Death to the Usurper

I like George Monbiot.
I know I shouldnt as he is the epitome of the lefty Guardian knobhead, but he seems a nice bloke, sincere, affable and charmingly eccentric in a posh, English public school way.
Yeah I know he bangs on all the time about climate change, drowning polar bears, sun tan oil splashed penguins roasting in the Arctic that now resembles Ibiza in August (minus the drunk English hooligans - yet) and the rest of the international leftist (yawn) psuedo-green agenda whilst keeping his gob firmly shut about immigration whilst living alone on a rock in the mid atlantic surrounded only by Manx shearwaters and orcas and a friendly seal called Eric that catches kippers for him. Apparently.
Yet today he has written an article that is as Eco-Xenophobic as you can get, as it gives you a tip on how to to hunt, trap and eat North American Crayfish that have decimated the indigenous White Tailed Crayfish.
The North American Crayfish is the Mike Tyson of crayfish.
It is a diseased, psychotic, evil, illegal immigrant colonist who displaces the indigenous crayfish, colonises their territory and then reproduces until it totally devastates the indigenous environment and indigenous crayfish.
I am saying nothing governor.
But theres a phrase of his that I believe should be the motto of the Eco-Xenophobes everywhere.
I intend to use it more and when I do I will accredit it to George Monbiot ;
DEATH TO THE USURPERS !
