I'd had kept it polite and "tried" to let them understand that there is a good reason for taking the position that you had and that you did so on the approach to a red light...with no progress to be lost by vehicles behind.

Just watching that made me want to punch something.
This is always the "risk" with taking a safe position, other road sharers dont understand what, or why, you are doing what youre doing and think you are simply a "jumped up" cyclist trying to hold everything up.
