A Jobsworth is somebody, usually who works for the government who gets paid minimum wage yet takes their job as seriously as if they were working for some secret military organisation. The common jobsworth is usually found working for the Devonia police force, however a more rare and more dangerous type of jobsworth is found working for London Transport or as Security guards at rock music venues in London. These are more dangerous as they usually originate from countries with secret police, mafia and fascist regimes and therefore guard their miniscule amounts of responsibility with their lives
The scabbing jobsworth wouldn't let us stay for the after party, we were manhandled out of the venue.
