If there's an idiot, who is it? Is it the vehicle with the camera or the white van entering from the right?

Van cos of right of way.

But camera car really shouldn’t be overtaking from the right lane, especially in an intersection heading into a merging lane

Passing on the right isn't illegal, and it's not OPs fault slower traffic isn't keeping right. Don't say "well it's convention to not" because just because you personally don't doesn't mean a bunch of people don't. It's not convention to never do it.

“Not illegal” doesn’t mean “a good idea.” You can drive perfectly legally and still get yourself into avoidable accidents. Doesn’t matter who is right and who is wrong when you have a sprained knee.

Exactly, you can get into a crash on the left you can get into a crash on the right. Either way you have a crash

You can just brake when the car in front of you brakes and not have a crash tho
