Apex Predators, Unleashed

There is going to be a lot of this sort of thing happening around Western Europe, the UK, and the USA:

A British father-of-two has dumped his partner after falling for a 22-year-old Ukrainian refugee who came to live with them to escape the war. Tony Garnett, 29, and his partner Lorna, 28, took in Sofiia Karkadym at the start of May, but just 10 days later their seemingly-happy marriage was torn apart when the he ran away with the refugee.

The security guard, who lives in Bradford, West Yorkshire, says he has fallen in love with the 22-year-old and wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

Sofiia, who fled the city of Lviv in western Ukraine, said she ‘fancied’ Tony as soon as she saw him and that the pair are living their very own ‘love story’. Admitting the pain this will cause Lorna, Tony said he has ‘discovered a connection with Sofiia like I’ve never had before’, adding that they ‘know this is right’.

The family had taken Sofiia in in an effort to do their bit to help Ukrainian’s fleeing the Russian invasion, with Tony telling The Sun he ‘wanted to do the right thing’ and that she was the first person to get in touch on a Facebook page where he offered to house a refugee.

This is about as totally unexpected as the rampant immigrant rapes in Scandinavia and Germany. Ukrainian women are famously mercenary; even Russian women find their cold ruthlessness to be a little on the extreme side. And a Ukrainian refugee without a home or employment prospects is going to value a stable man with a job considerably more highly than the average Western woman, which sets the stage for a series of considerably unfair competitions.

The lesson, as always, is this: sink the ships.
