As a QC, she has been going by her maiden name since '95?[edit]

That's what the article states, but not why, though I'm sure it would be of interest for many readers. Normally you'd think she'd go by Cherie Blair QC, not "Booth" which is (obviously) her maiden name. Plus, another thing: she was christened Theresa Cara Booth? So why isn't that her birth name as well, then? -andy 77.191.216.249 (talk) 00:01, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I would answer that but I can't follow it because I speak American and not British. :-) 2602:306:BDA0:97A0:466D:57FF:FE90:AC45 (talk) 00:14, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Photo[edit]

It strikes me as incorrect to have the photo including me in this article. A friend of mine really liked it, comparing it to Alfred Hitchcock's famous cameo appearances and suggested there should be more random pictures of me with article subjects. :-) But obviously, that's just silly. Anyway, the photo is illustrating the section on "philanthropy" and although Wikipedia is a charity, there's no real connection to Cherie Blair (she hasn't served on the board or been an advisor or donated money as far as I know). I'd remove it myself but I'm sure someone would come up with some kind of bizarre conflict of interest theory, so I'll just raise the issue here for discussion.----Jimbo Wales (talk) 13:06, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

I can't see any obvious reason for its inclusion - and the caption seems more concerned with publicising the photographer than explaining its relevance. Unless someone can come up with such an explanation, I'll remove it. AndyTheGrump (talk) 15:38, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to add significant information (she looks about the same age as she does in the infobox picture), and it has sheer levels of Jimbo that go well beyond the exposure limits set in the UN Rights Of Prisoners guidelines. So yes, dump it. --15:44, 28 August 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by NatGertler (talkcontribs)
I agree with the grumpy guy above...the image seems to be unhelpful overall.--MONGO 15:46, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
I agree with the above comments and have removed the image.--ukexpat (talk) 16:05, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Take a look at this bizarre commment on my talk page. I was the one who went through Allan warren's photographs on the Commons and added them to articles years ago. The comment is so pathetic that it's somewhat... cute. Surtsicna (talk) 21:43, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
