The Duke of York title was mentioned in the Business Question in the House of Commons. Rachael Maskell, Labour MP for York Central has asked a debate on how aristocratic titles using geographic locations are assigned. Maskell also mentioned about the 1917 Titles Deprivation Act and the possibility of removing Duke of York title. The Leader of the House, Jacob Rees-Mogg MP responded that The Titles Deprivation Act 1917 was an unusual classification process instead of "attainting the dukes who were on the wrong side of the first world war". He also added that "territorial designations" are up to the sovereign.

Rachael Maskell (York Central) (Lab/Co-op)
My city of York has developed an interest in how titles are assigned and in how they can be removed from people whose title takes the name of a geographical location. In 1917, Parliament enacted the Titles Deprivation Act to remove a title for the act of treason. Will the Leader of the House make time to debate new legislation that empowers local people to determine the circumstances in which titles are awarded and removed, and reflect on the geographical location from which titles are taken? York has a global reputation not just for its rich cultural heritage, but for the social values it espouses.

Mr Rees-Mogg
The Titles Deprivation Act 1917 is an extremely interesting Act of Parliament. An unusual process was adopted: rather than simply attainting the dukes who were on the wrong side of the first world war, it was decided to use classification. That was a successful means of legislating, although I understand that the successors to the dukes who were deprived could petition to have their titles restored if they so wished. As regards the award of territorial designations, that is a matter for the sovereign.

The BBC articles also mentioned about the renaming of The Duke of York Stakes (at York Racecourse) to The 1895 Duke of York Stakes.

York MP's Commons debate call over aristocratic titles
People in the UK should have a say in whether dukes and duchesses can take on the names of places in their area, an MP has said.

Andrew seems to be losing things all over the globe. The latest is that a school in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia is changing its name from Prince Andrew School to something um.... better.

Probably not a good idea to have his name associated with anything pertaining to minors.

I know some tabloid reporters love this stuff, but it all seems a bit pointless for them to print it. Does anyone really care whether Prince Andrew uses Apple earphones, any other brand of earphones, or no earphones at all?! I'm sure their reporters/photographers could find something more useful to look into!

I agree. And is he never allowed to smile again?

It would certianly be more seemly if he hadn't been seen in the car with the queen grinning away at something...

No, he is not. He must look absolutely miserable or better yet, guilty, for the rest of his life. Or even better, disappear completely, never to be seen anywhere ever ever again.

In efffect that's what has happened to him. He will only be seen in public on rare occasions, noone will work with him, and he's confined to private life.

That's why he's not grinning ear to ear. He's in a prison of his own making.

I suppose he's trying to confine himself to private life. It's not his fault if some newspapers appear to find it necessary to print photos of him listening to something on earphones and then speculate about whether or not they're Apple earphones or any other sort of earphones, as if it's an issue which actually matters to anyone!

he is but I think he does periodicially show how god awfully insensitive he is, by things like beig seen grinning away and sharing a joke with the queen only a short time after the disastrous interview. (not but what the quene should alos have been more sensitive.) I feel that Andrew will never feel much remorse for his stupid selfish behaviour... he will feel that it is very unfair that he was critiicised and forced to give up his work....

That he is permanently seen riding - and even if the paparazzis use the big lenses, he is aware of it by now. So, that he is attention seeking, that is one thing.

But should he not use a different saddle by now? He is using a very sporty one, wich supports only for the upper legs. A western saddle or better a norman knight's saddle would be probably more appropriate for his age - more supportive for the upper body...
