And now the Europe referendum in out question is out in the open now, depending of course on the conservatives forming a government in 2015. David Cameron faced some direct questions from a packed house of back benchers and opposition: on MOD cuts, the fall in unemployment, child credit and its threats to poverty and now the tampering with A levels.
But it was the referendum that provoked most comment, particularly from labour leader Ed Miliband who said the PM is "frightened" of his backbench A fact born out that many Tory MPs are believed to want the commitment written down in the next election manifesto, as some "don't trust him" on the issue.
However one thing can be seen from Cameron's speech today, there can be no doubt that Britain and much of the EU have very different ideas about the future of the union.
