I am acutely aware that I am blundering through English civil and criminal procedure, in which I have no qualification, practice or expertise. However, I would expect an application for variation or discharge to proceed as a matter of fact, and a point of appeal to be on a point of law. For that reason, I believe that an application for variation or discharge would be inappropriate. Indeed, if that were the point to be taken on appeal, the appeal would be unsuccessful.
