Why this site is called the Salisbury Pages

Lord Salisbury was British Prime Minister at the end of the 19th century, the golden age of laissez faire government. He was quoted as saying (something like) "Governments should do nothing, for when ever they do anything they invariably get it wrong". It was rare wisdom from a statesman and todays politicians would do well to learn from it!
