Motorway looks quiet and lanes 2 & 3 almost empty in near distance judging by your camera.
Could you have pulled into empty lane 2 rather than carrying along at a slowish speed?
Not saying you're wrong but it avoids conflict and allows for faster moving traffic to safely enter the motorway and move along out of your way

Normally provided it is safe to do so thats would I would try and do. But:-
1) at this point lane 1 effectively is the start of the offslip
travelling time between the two is only about 30 seconds
2) there was a que of traffic ahead of me travelling at the same speed in both lane 1 and 2, lane 1 would be heading for the offslip.
3) I Was keeping an appropriate safe braking distance
4) having rechecked the video there was in fact a car overtaking me at that point in lane two that would have stopped me from changing lane safely.

The only way I could have changed lane was to have braked, slowed, changed lane, waited for the van to sort himself out, probably have slowed even more to pull back in behind him with a suitable braking distance.
All he needed to do was LOOK, adjust his speed accordingly, pull out behind me with a suitable braking distance.
There was no need to have cut me up, that was just stupid and dangerous.

Impatient idiot driver in a Morrisons Van
I was driving in lane one, under the speed limit, keeping a sensible distance from the car in front,It was raining.
The lane becomes of off slip from the A40 shortly before it becomes the M40. Shortly before this an onslip joins the road. The driver started trying to force his way immediately in front of me just before the end of the slip instead of adjusting speed and pulling out behind me into an empty road. He did end up joining behind me, but then went out to lane two, overtook, then forced his way in front of me with barely feet to clear. He then could not decide which of the two lanes he wanted on the offslip.
Same type of junction as a motorway, highway code says:-
Rule 259

Joining the motorway. When you join the motorway you will normally approach it from a road on the left (a slip road) or from an adjoining motorway. You should

give priority to traffic already on the motorway
check the traffic on the motorway and match your speed to fit safely into the traffic flow in the left-hand lane
not cross solid white lines that separate lanes or use the hard shoulder
stay on the slip road if it continues as an extra lane on the motorway
remain in the left-hand lane long enough to adjust to the speed of traffic before considering overtaking.
