On Wednesday morning David Cameron promised an in/out referendum on the EU and set the date for 2017.
Only thing is, there is a rather large obstacle in the way and we're not talking about Nigel Farage's unusually wide grin.
A very important election which the Conservatives must win otherwise all of this referendum talk is as relevant as Donald Trump.
Currently, online bookmakers, Paddy Power, are offering odds of 11/4 for a Conservative majority in 2015 and 5/2 on an EU referendum taking place in 2017.
Lets put these into context with a look at the odds offered on some other things on the political (and not so political) horizon...
Ed Miliband becoming next PM
Odds: 10/11 Ooh, some pretty serious odds here. And if they're right then they blow any plans for a referendum clear out the political waters
Hilary Clinton becoming America's first female president
Odds: 7/2 Seems there's a good chance of the continuation of the Clinton dynasty, but a referendum is ever so slightly more certain.
Finding horse meat in your burger
Odds: Nearly one in three if it's a Tesco value jobby bought before last week. We have more chance of being European through our accidental dietary habits than through political union.
England winning the World Cup in Rio 2014
Odds: 20/1 48 years of hurt etc, etc.
Donald Trump to buy the New York Times outright by the end of 2015
Odds: 33/1 God. Forbid. Please.
Team GB beating their 2012 medal haul in Rio in 2016
Odds: 5/1 This is more like it. We can take our isolationist EU stance and then rub it in the face of all those pesky continentals as we trounce them at a host of sporting events. Superb.
Lance Armstrong winning another yellow jersey
66/1 These are quite generous odds with everything that has happened.
Nigel Farage becoming PM
Odds: 100/1 Lance Armstrong has more chance of wining the Tour de France than this man has of becoming PM. If anyone sees Armstrong breaking a sweat on a bike, knock him off.
