Yet again you are wrong. The overtaking rider is much less at fault.

You need to stay off the road IMO.

The rider turning left as the main burden to yield, period. The laws YOU posted for the UK also indicate this.

Sad so many, even motorcyclist, have got this wrong.

I even posted an article for a similar situation showing you legally the left turning vehicle is wrong, I know the are and can assure you a Kawasaki 1000 was most likely hauling azz through there, yet not even a factor in assigning fault.

The overtaking motorcycle may have been foolhardy, but not at fault, he was already overtaking before any indication there was a place to turn and the left turning vehicle was turning.

You just don't seem to get it. You and everyone that says the overtaking bike is at fault is WRONG. Period end of story.

If that is a passing lane, ie: lane two on one carriageway of a dual carriageway road, then the rider turning is at fault. However, I believe that it is a single carriageway, two lаne rοad. The passing rider is in the lane for traffic going in the opposite direction.

Here in North Dakota the passing rider was automatically at fault because he hit the turning rider from behind. Doesn't matter if he was going too fast or if the turning rider didn't signal, the cops would tell the passing rider he was careless and didn't adjust his speed for the conditions, i.e parade of motorcycles, passing more than one vehicle at a time, etc. I hope they both lived and learned.
