Because Batman didn't want to believe obviously he's that stubborn
Currrently Reading- Suicide Squad,Justice League,Batwoman,Batman,Batman and Robin,Detective Comics, Wonder Woman,Batman Eternal,Mighty Avengers,All new X-factor,Justice League 3000 and Harley Quinn
I find it odd that a lot of people want Batman to rely and trust his family more, then we get a monologue saying how much he relys Alfred and that he is missing the void of not having him for a briefing, and all of a sudden Batman's insecure and a wussy.
The back-up was really good. I don't mind a ranting Joker, if there is an original punchline at the end.
For the record, I feel Joker and Gordon always know Bruce is Batman and just play dumb, but it's not as cut and dry as you're making it out to be.

Wait, are people arguing that Joker doesn't know Bruce is Batman?
Joker saw him without his mask on.
Of course Batman would be scared and doubtful, but here he's kind of waffling and useless. He's completely off his guard, walking into traps; and generally providing ample evidence that his allies are, in fact, a weakness, if the thought of harm coming to them gets Bruce this far off his game.
And refering to Alfred as "Bruce Wayne's butler" or "Pennyworth" just didn't ring true, regardless of the circumstances.
