It is not quite that bad, but that was pretty much my thinking.
But it also seems to me that the court are not following their own rules. I forget the phrasing, but they are supposed to make all reasonable efforts to secure a friendly settlement. The applicant's questions do not seem to me to be unreasonable, and answers would appear likely to help progress towards a settlement, but they seem to have been ignored.
There are a couple more letters, but the applicant appears to have mislaid the reply to that last letter. I understand it says pretty much the same as the previous one.
I'll see if I can get them up in due course...
