The British would say that you are blinding if they saw you. In slang, this means that you are wonderful!

Either way, you can be sure that it is a compliment if someone says you are blinding.
A gaffer is slang for a boss. This term can be used to describe a literal boss at a workplace, or it could be to describe someone who is acting bossy. Unless you are at work when called this, it culd be taken as an insult...
A nob is a rich and arrogant person, holding a similar meaning to the American slang, "snob." This isn't a great thing to be called, but it at least awknowledges that you have cash to spare and that you aren't afraid to let others know it!
Jock doesn't refer to an atheletic person like it does in American slang. Instead, this term is used to mean about the same thing as "dude" or "pal". If someone calls you a jock, they are calling you a friend. However, they may be using this term sarcastially if they don't like you. This all depends on who you are talking to.
Corker may sound like a negative thing to be called, but it really is a great compliment. If someone calls you a corker, it means that you are great at whatever you are doing. You have talent, and others are sure to notice!
