Infuriating talking heads

Will someone please tell the guy from the Criminal Bar Association and the Bar Council on Five Live talking about the decision in R v Davis (that you have not received a fair trial if convicted on the evidence of anonymous witnesses) 

(1) that the decision was not from the Court of Appeal (as he said on at least three occasions in a three minute interview) but from the House of Lords; and
(2) did not quash the conviction (as he suggested twice, once in answer to a direct question) but remitted the case back to the Court of Appeal for further procedure.

While his ponitificating may impress an ill-briefed journalist it looks (to someone that has read the case) like he hasn’t read the case, or indeed the news reports on the case, or indeed listened to the questions he was asked (which talked about Law Lords).

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
