if he's standing so close to you in the first place that he needs to move, then who's invading who's personal space?
Last time I looked, there was no obligation to stand in the pocket of the person queueing next to you.

I'd have pointed out to the man that every surface of the bus will be covered in germs, and that if he wants to behave like Michael Jackson then he probably shouldn't go out in public with children.
...if you press it, they will come.
