Where have I gone wrong with my tulips?

Last year I wasn’t happy with so many of my tulips looking deformed so I got new bulbs, put them in new soil/compost in a completely new site and thought I would have a happy patch for a few years.

So why do my tulips look like this?

The first ones to open, that I picked just as they were showing colour, escaped the spread of the “spot” up the stem to the petals so I did get some tulips.  A week later and the patch was invested with the “spot”.  Why oh why?  What is it, what can I do?  Should I claim from the supplier? Do I invest again?
