The remote volcanic islands had an active parliament, called the M&Otilded, for hundreds of years until its population was evacuated in 1931. Every morning the men of the island would gather in the cobbled street of the main island to decide on their work for the day and to exchange gossip about the latest visitors to the island. Work would have to be postponed until the following day if, as frequently happened, discussions continued into the afternoon without resolution.
