Oh look...there's Frederik in the back there.  Surprised he wasn't given the opportunity to give the opening speech since he's handling all the activities connected with the business promotion.

I wonder if Jeppe Kofod is looking at QM, thinking what I am thinking: "She doesn't look well" or "she looks tired"
