I don't think it is strange but it is complicated. I know I say capitalism is evil but here is one example of why it is. New ways of generating profit have led to targeting people to believe they 'need' things such as an xbox or £200 trainers or a 1/2 mile wide HDTV that washes up and hoovers as well( Ok I exaggerate ). We do not need any of these things but the capitalist machinery needs us to believe we need them. Add to that the stagnation in wages and as you say the very real increases in housing, rent, council tax and utilities , we see why households need two incomes, Add in the politics of envy and we have another strand.
Just sayin like!
You should have asked the court to send you the documents by email. I suggest that you call them again and asked them to do that.
No, don't start raising other issues. Don't complicate matters. Don't start getting ahead of yourself
