Damon Albarn apologizes to Argentina for Top Gear's offensive behavior

Full article 76 comments

Damon Albarn has apologized to the people of Argentina after Top Gear offended the population with an inappropriate number plate while filming their BBC show in the country. In effect during his set at one Buenos Aires main theatres this week the Blur front-man called To Gear's Jeremy Clarkson a “f****** a*****” over the serious gaffe. Read full article

    Apology? It wouldn't be because Damon would lose money if no-one showed at his gigs, very shallow behaviour I might add, just lip service but the Argentinians just lap it up, they haven't a clue.

    Damon who?

    What right has he got to apologise for anyone but himself? He isn't a representative of the BBC or of the UK, so his view is just that...his view.

    My view is that the only party that needs to apologise is Argentina for the following things:

    The Falklands War
    For the war crimes committed against the people of the Falklands.
    For the hatred incited towards the people of the Falklands.
    To the native Amerindians - whom they are still stealing from and murdering.
    The world in general - for being a bunch of deadbeats who won't pay their debts.
    Top Gear - for the totally uncalled for attack upon them.
    To just about all of their neighbours for their spurious claims upon their lands.

    Yeah, he had a potentially offensive number plate and the arg were throwing bricks, making death threats and attacking hotels! Isn't it obvious that no matter what sort of number plate intentionally offensive or not it's arg that should be apologetic. These people after invading another nation then demand an apology for seeing a number plate that reminded them of the war they caused (and humiliatingly lost). Bunch of hopeless third world savages.

    The 'problem' is that argies have been persuaded of several things. The 'education system' brainwashes all 'children' into the idea that THE FALKLAND ISLANDS were 'stolen' from them. As has been pointed out on many occasions, it is not possible for one country to “inherit” territory from another. And yet this is exactly what argieland says happened. Argieland's 'claim' is based on a few days in 1820 when an argie pirate was there and a few weeks in 1832.
    Then, the Falklands War was nothing to do with present-day argieland. It was 'the Junta'. It's been written out. How come argieland acknowledges the 'veterans', erects monuments and celebrates the war?
    And the 'present day' is based on the left hand not seeing what the right hand does. How can a 'country' take action against a commercial enterprise for trading with a nation it doesn't recognise.
    The FACT is that argies were incensed because they were forced to see that they are liars. 255 British servicement and 3 Falkland Islanders DIED in 1982. The responsibility lies with argies. Argies hate responsibility.

    He joins a list of UK artists (eg Roger Waters) who happen to be on tour in Argentina and want to do anything to sell tickets to those lucky individuals still with enough cash after they have bought food etc . No doubt when he returns to the UK, his remarks will have been “taken out of context”. As said earlier, the Top Gear episode has nothing to do with him and just proves that some people (La Campora) have absolutely no sense of humour - and it kind of makes up for their athlete being filmed in the FI prior to the 2012 Olympics. A bit of cheeky fun - no more and no less.

    @8 You are, of course, right. I actually feel rather uncomfortable about the number of rich musicians going to Argentina and exploiting the poor. Honestly, they charge ridiculously high prices for tickets and because the Argentines are so desperate to hear music from western artists they are prepared to go into debt or stump up a month's wages for a few hours entertainment.

    Whilst on my rant, I particularly single out Paul McCartney who is rich beyond even the likes of CFK, hasn't been able to sing for two decades, and charging exorbitant prices that Argentines beg, steal and borrow to afford. (What is their obsession with the Beatles?). When friends of mine described how excited they were to have invested a month's wages for two tickets all I could say was why? 'But it is Paul McCartney', they said. Yes, why?

    Add to that the recent interviews Morrisey has been giving about his cancer and how he is milking as much money as possible out of tours so he can retire and we see another example of exploiting. They will say anything.

    They are all only interested in ticket sales.

    Clarkson, who I can't stand, is well known for his antagonistic behaviour, it's a large part of the reason why he's so successful. If he did do it on purpose it was a pretty immature “prank”. However, the response of the Argentines, by resorting to mindless violence and intimidation was orders of magnitude worse.

    If driving around a car with the license plate H982 FKL is an apparently a lynchable offence then what is training on a war memorial for a political stunt? Not to mention all the other celebrations the Argentines do over their failed war?

    I disagree with some of the comments above. It's a shame South Americans have to pay so much to see some like McCartney or Roger Waters, but putting on a big rock show can be staggeringly expensive.

    Apart from the cost of transporting tonnes of equipment the road crew has to be paid, transported, fed and accommodated. And whilst this certainly doesn't affect Paul & Rog, these days most people don't seem to think they have to actually pay for music so for professional musicians touring is the main way they pay the bills which is reflected in the cost of the tickets. For that matter it's usually the merchandise, rather than ticket sales, that are most profitable.

    I'm not a fan of either Damon Albarn, or his former band, but from what I know of him I don't think cynicism was the motivation behind his outburst. More likely reflexive rock-star anti-authoritan street-cred stuff allied to an awareness of what his audience expects.

    @19 chronic

    Depends on who you ask. Blur was hugely popular in Britain in the '90's but far too British for an American audience 'to get', but there were plenty of people who nontheless knew who they were, and he still has a profile in your country - just not amongst people you know perhaps...

    The British only victories came against stone age tribes throughout Africa, the Pacific, and North America. Check the map of the British “Empire”, it covers absolutely NO lands where any military of any consequence was in place at the time.

    You are legends in your own minds and the most overrated military in human history, taking advantage of fighting tribes on remote islands. Pathetic pusillanimity.

    Please forgive the copy/paste.

    I just want to provide a list of local (Neuquén Province) number plates that should be banned by the national government:

    ARS 682 (This obviously means Argentine surrender June 1982) This number plate is on a Renault 9.
    ENG 255 (This obviously pertains to the English (British) dead in the Falklands War) This number is on a FIAT 127
    BGN 332 (This is surely connected to ARA Belgrano and the number is close to those who died aboard her) This number is on a Renault 4
    LGN 923 (This obviously means Mount Longdon and the number is close enough to the total of fatalities in the Falklands War) This number is on a Toyota HiLux.

    These are just the ones I've seen over the last few days, I'm sure that if one really tried one could find offense on every other car that passes you on the road. This stupidity plus the 20 year old “Malvinas veterans” just make our poor country seem a sort of Alice in wonderland place, another example of the kirchnerverse!!!!!!

    I agree with you. Don't get me wrong, the British are good fighters, not just to this epic status which seems to give many here a fake poetic license to insult everyone else's military. I've always noticed that about the British, always insulting the Germans, the Spanish, the French, the Italians... if you look at history, the British don't do any better or worse than any of them. You just did well RECENTLY, which is not the same argument as being overall a better fighting force. Before the 1700s, I don't think anyone quavered in their boots over you which is why so many tried so many times to invade you even though you had a massive advantage of being on an island surrounded by rough seas and weather.

    @25

    I'm not sure about the Boers, but it was that British victory in South Africa that was a direct influence in them the very next year getting cocky enough and trying to invade and exterminate the proto-Argentines in Buenos Aires, twice actually.

    @22 I agree with your point that artists don't make money from selling music now. Illegal downloading was the end of that. Also the reason the likes of U2 Incorporated give their music away for free. The reason I singled out McCartney as an example is that he absolutely does not need to make another penny and could easily tour at cost in countries where attending a concert is a significant financial outlay. It seems to exploit the desperation for anything western.

    Oh whatever Paul. Firstly, Albarn expressed no such opinion about the Falklands, he merely noted that Clarkson probably behaved like a twat. For the record I believe he did too, but that the reaction of the Argentines was orders of magnitude worse.

    The truly intelligent people, and those who have nothing to gain from appeasing Argentina, believe in the principle self-determination.

    If you bothered to investigate British military history, you would see that most other countries had much larger armies than us.
    We relied on the Royal Navy for our protection and were the world's premier navy at the turn of the 2oth century.
    However, land battles.
    Blenheim 1704
    Waterloo 1815
    Quebec 1759
    Salamanca 1812
    Inkerman 1854
    Penobscot 1759

    India was of no consequence ? The Indian forces were as well equipped with cannons and muskets AND had greater numbers of men.
    You are also saying that the American colonists and their French allies were of the “stone age”? Most of Britain's battles were at sea and not against countries paddling canoes.

    I saw Blur play in the US once and the theatre was full. Be that as it may, Albarn stated a view about Clarkson and not about the Falklands so this is hardly a news story. As for the Be11 END plate, does anyone know what the Spanish is for “self-deprecation”? Clarkson had been previously called a bellend by James May and so if the intended joke was to swap the jingoistic plates for the Be11 END plates then the joke was clearly intended to be on Clarkson i.e. a self-mocking joke, and not on the Argentines. Anyway, it's just a TV program about cars - why are some Argentines getting so excited? Except for Simon68 above who has clearly retained a sense of perspective and humour.

    And as for defining Britain in terms of the wars it has fought, I am much more interested in defining Britain in terms of the discoveries, innovations and cultural, democratic and legal contributions it has made and continues to make. It is these things that makes me most proud of my country, much more than whether we won wars with or without assistance.

There are a few minesweepers and coastal patrol vessels in the Clyde approaches. At this moment there is a foreign minesweeper approaching Sanda.

    I did make it clear earlier that although I have postal vote I was not going to exercise it as I felt it was not for someone my age to decide the radical future of my country -Britain/Scotland- in which I am now really a bystander.

    I counted 9 ships passing me at Gourock as I was heading to Glasgow...HMS Diamond in the Clyde was on the front cover of the Dunoon Observer....I missed that one but the rags photographer never.
    The previous weeks front cover had Peter Baxter posing in front of the Golden Gates.....he loves those light blue denim shirts....;-)
    Ps. If you see him don't mention his wife...I think she has left him...

    I decided to vote No...I couldn't see how we wouldn't end up with the Euro..the EU would have demanded it as a new country joining...
    ...and I don't like risk and uncertainty...especially where money is involved...
    Gossip done....

    Funny how Think, Voice and I am going to add in Enrique since he's just as big of a fool always end up on the right side of something AFTER they announce the winner.
    Odd.
    Its odd since they're never right beforehand....

    Damon Albarn is a gentleman, but that is impossible to understand by the diligent army of trolls.

    “Damon Albarn is a gentleman ”.

    Nonsense, Enrique.

    It just suits you to say so.

    Alberni is worried about Argentine backlash against him.
    Rightly scared, so he covered his own ass at the expense of the BBC crew.

    Calling Clarkson a “f*******g a**hole” is hardly being a gentleman, it's cowardly playing to the crowd, to protect his bottom line.

    Meanwhile, you tacitly approve of the government staged “grassroots” violence from fake 20 year old Falklands War “veterans”.

    You are just as fake - a government stooge and propagandist, nothing more.

    You yourself should be ashamed.

    65. Go ahead, but while you are at it post the link to where I'm supposed to be embarrassed about something I posted.
    Unlike You, Think and Enrique I really don't read every single post of every single poster.
    Funny how you all have time for that..

    69. You might have a little more credibility if the post wasn't a few minute before the voting day.
    But that's just my opinion.

    he's done the same thing a couple of other times also.

    “ ... no no, I wasn't fooled, I knew all along... ”

    sure...

    Voice wants our admiration, and he can't stand to be shown up as a fool.
