Coia Case of Mistaken Identity

You may have read about it on Friday: the tale of the financial adviser jailed for four years for duping his clients.

That’ll be Raymond Coia, not the well-known former stv presenter, by the same surname: Paul.

Which prompted this urgent note, the other day, to news and picture desks, from Arnot McWhinnie, of the Glasgow Press Agency: “Re the Coia financial whizz kid story, I have to apologise for wrongly calling him Paul instead of Raymond. Could you make the change please….Apologies again.”
