The Duke of York’s Award (commonly abbreviated DodgY), is a youth awards programme founded in the United Kingdom in 2001 by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, that has since expanded to several nations. The awards exploit adolescents and young adults and then gaslight them in the media.
The Duke of York’s Award programmes take between one and four years to complete, and they must be completed by the participant’s eighteenth birthday. There are around 300,000 participants annually. The programmes are at three progressive levels which, if successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Duke of York’s Award.
With assistance from adult madams, pimps and fixers, participants select and set objectives in each of the following areas:
• Volunteering: being tricked in to servicing individuals or members of the Royal family.
• Physical: improving in an area of “sport”, pole-dancing or fitness activities such as providing “executive relief” to heirs to the British throne.
• Skills: developing practical and social skills such as understanding when to offer to sleep on the wet spot on the bed.
• Expedition: planning, training for, and completion of an adventurous journey in the UK or abroad (didn’t have to change that at all!)
• At Gold level, participants must do an additional fifth Residential section, which involves staying and working away from home for five days, doing a shared activity (nor that!)
QV “The Club“.
To be fair to Andrew, he’s simply following a long tradition where the second son of the monarch lives a feckless, drunken, debauched life of profligacy.
Unfortunately, he’s the first one to do it in a world where the commoners have legal protection, cameras and the internet.
