Ched Evans ought not to give interviews. They do him no good.
Evans was an obnoxious very young man with a lot of money and, as we can see from his effusions today, very little intellect.
But a marked improvement in his attitude to women could have happened anyway between the ages of 22 and 27.
And he simply was not a rapist.
More than anything, he was one of the last category of working-class men to be paid much at all, and in fact to be paid a very great deal more than CPS solicitors, or even newspaper columnists.
That, more than anything, was what they had, and have, against him.
Moreover, does anyone seriously believe that a person's sexual history is wholly immaterial to whether or not he or she may have consented to sex?
Are we seriously expected to believe that Evans's accuser was precisely as likely or unlikely to consent to sex as was, during her earthly life, Saint Teresa of Calcutta?
No, and the jury did not buy that, either.
