A risible name

Did you know there is a Cherie Blair Foundation?

I'm sure they do very worthy work, but was it wise for an institution to choose such a risible name?

And why entrepreneurs?

It's not as if she has ever had a real job - school, university, lawyer.

I suppose she showed some entrepreneurial flair with the Bristol flats.

Oh I know it's easy to scoff.  And whatever they do, the Blairs are never coming back (they are a modern day Duke and Duchess of Windsor perpetually disgraced and in perpetual exile).  But there is something about the name Blair that just irritates me - Ms Blair could be standing passively in an empty white room and it would still annoy me.
