A derogatory term used to describe a dislikable and irritating individual who has an opinion on everything. A knobsworth will usually feel that he is in a position of authority or has a sense of purpose. Worse than a Jobsworth, a Knobsworth will be disagreeable even if there is no point.
That traffic official is a right Knobsworth. Not only did he stop me from driving my mate and his decapitated arm to the Accident and Emergency entrance, he told me I should not have parked in the Ambulance Bay.
