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!

Lady Law Speaker

It is the object of the Storish government to have good relationships with all countries in its geographic vicinity. Constancia is a friend of Stormark. Having fought the evil Jingdaoese bravely – and thereby protecting our Longships Islands from the terror of Sisera – we must secure a close and trusted relationship. In recognition of that object, we offered Constancia free access in the waters around the Longships Islands so that Constancian trade will not be impeded by our politics. That, Lady Law Speaker, is friendship.

I move that the Althing adopt this bill by unanimous consent.
