Scott Leaver was charged with Common Assault and Public Order offences and was sentenced to a Community Order, three months curfew at his home from 8am - 8pm, and ordered to pay £85 court fines.
Incident near East Putney tube station. The driver performed a dangerous pass as I was about to overtake the parked bus (32 seconds), forcing me to veer left behind the bus. When I caught up with him I looked in the vehicle but did not say or gesture anything. He started the conversation with "what's the matter?" (transcript below)
He does not appear to be aware of the Primary Position. The guidance on Primary Positioning from the Department of Transport is available here: https://professionals.bikeability.org.uk/download/704/
Also interesting that towards the end of the video, a man across the road appears to be offering him support - "tell it like it is...arseholes, every single one of them".

Driver: What’s the matter?
Me: That wasn’t good driving mate.
Driver: Hang on, you pulled in front of me, bang in the middle of the road, not pulling to one side, you’re the one in the wrong.
Me: When? At the lights?
Driver: At the lights yeah.
Me: I’m entitled to be there, it’s safer……
Driver: Straight in the middle of the road.
Me: You know you’re on camera mate?
Driver: Do I give a fuck? Pull over.
Driver: Do you think I give a fuck? About your camera?
Me: I’m allowed……
Driver: You, I tell you what you done right, you pulled, you was in front of me at the lights right, and when you went behind the bus, bang in the middle instead of pulling over to the side to let cars past, you decided to stay bang in the fucking middle.
Me: Yeah, that’s the safest……
Driver: No, no, it’s not, you’re in the fucking way of me, so see your camera?
Driver: See that thing there, I’ll stick that right up your fucking arse. Right? Now fucking mess about with me right cunt, you was in my fucking way, right?
Me: I’m entitled to……
Driver: You can put that wherever you fucking want.
Driver: Get in front of me again I’ll fucking run you straight over, cunt.
Driver: Yeah fucking cunt, straight in front of me, you and your fucking webcam.
