Casting back to my comments on the number 3 and its numeric cubik form of 27 in relation to the signing of the European Treaty of Lisbon, then perhaps one would be looking to yesterday, the 27th of March, for further clues as to our potential and pre-packed future.
We see that French President Nicolas Sarkozy concluded his hectic visit to the UK, bringing the two day summit to an end by giving a press conference jointly with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, at Arsenal Football Club's Emirates Stadium in North London.
It seems matters did not go entirely to plan, certainly according to the Press Association running order issued in the morning, which gave the "UK France summit time" as 11.30. The duo apparently ran late, and as such, matters did not properly begin until 13.00 or so. Both schedule and actual time details are available here, courtesy of Guardian News.
From the BBC report:
Speaking to reporters on the pitch ahead of formal talks, Mr Brown announced a joint British-Franco initiative to help to bring education to 16 million children in Africa.
"Our two countries are at the heart of what we want to be an outward looking and globally focused Europe"
"The communique was particularly detailed about planned cooperation on defence projects - including "a joint industrial strategy for complex weapons" and co-operation to "develop European military capabilities".
Now it may just be coincidence that from today's Daily Express we see that there was a massive and unprecedented "army style" 600 strong police raid in the North London borough of Finsbury Park at 14.15 yesterday, a place "very close" to the new football stadium according to wikipedia.
"The 600 officers were part of a 1,122-strong unit"
For 1,122, or eleven hundred and twenty two, is perhaps 11 plus 22, totalling 33
Or, going back to 3, the source of the cube and where we commenced, we could suggest 1122/3 = 374, the 7 and the 4 then amalgamating to a convenient 11 with the 3 remaining.
Or maybe even 33 x 34 - a step "up"?
Could it be that whatever way you craft it... ?
