No, The Duke of York is too far away from where I live.

Every pub across Great Britain, with the name The Duke of York, is now considering a name change.

'It was bad enough when the only rumours were about his 10,000 men, but now there is all of this stuff in the papers, and we don't know what to believe,' said local landlord, Barry Publican.

Kevin Barman said, 'We wanted to change our name to the Prince Edward, but people will think we are an artisan potato establishment, and we aren't hipsters,' said the expansively-tattooed and bouffant spokesman.

'For years,' said Barry Publican, 'I have been trying to destroy the reputation of this place with Karaoke and darts nights, and now Prince Andrew has done it for me.'
