Worth having a listen. After this I feel justified in inferring the fault as belonging to him and to question anything he says alleging bad cyclists. He fits a stereotype of the angry cyclist hater who dresses up his bigotry in self serving arguments, largely irrelevant to the specific circumstances.
It only took some gentle questioning for his story to change from a toot to using the horn continuously.
Perhaps his biggest slip though was letting out that the cyclists real offence, in his eyes at least, was that they were on the road which is for cars.
I looked but have been unable to find anything that says that Dornough Terrace is reserved for cars
