There is a Queen who weaves in the sky
See how She spins, see Her finger fly


She's been before us from beginning to end
She is our mother, lover and friend


She is the weaver and we are the web
She is the needle and we are thread


Lady Frigg never leaves us on the line
Through Her Love we're always doing fine!

On a point of order, I would like to give the members of this Althing so confused the obvious comment that this bill is not about the Clear Sea, but with Minarboria. Reading the bill would make this clear, however, if members only read the explanation, they would be in the wrong.

 

It was a simple clerical error.

 

The government supports this bill in the fullest.
