ATB - Undoubled contract
1nt is simply best on this hand--no issue with rebid and a spade transfer is fine. I would doble 21c in pass out seat.
My bet is lawyers were involved on both sides.
There is a uk lawyer who specialises in getting celebs off usually motoring offences. I think he successfully defended David Beckham recently on a technicality. I would bet lawyers have played a major role in this case too. No idea what any organisation can do if legal action is threatened.
ATB - Hopeless grand
Using a convention without nailing down continuations is a bit like sending a child to play with a cut throat razor. I think 3 should show a non minimum but no shortage or good side suit. After which 3nt should show a flat raise. Then both players are on ...
ATB - Hopeless grand

The first sequence in my view leaves the pass out as reasonable because the double should show a strong three suiter most likely 4441 or maybe 5440. If doubler has both majors there are better options than double. The second is up for discussion but unless we agree something else ...
steaming tendencies
Cornelia you are right if you have a Data like personality, if not you will be influenced by your run. Do not chase losses better quit and come back fresh.
Penaly or Takeout
Reminds me of the optional double which led to thongs like fishbein and lower minor. The late John Collins employed lmxtra --the extra being dbl with strong balanced because he so disliked having his chain jerked. My dislike of all optional bids can only be matched with such awful conventions ...
