EU Referendum at the same time of 2015 General Election

Following the recent televised debates, the general public's opinion is piqued in the in-or-out debate over the EU. I take Nick Clegg's point that a referendum can't be done overnight, especially it is probably best for the economy to settle, however I feel that the discussion should happen within the next couple of years whilst it is fresh on the public's mind. I think that the 2015 general election is a prime opportunity for such a referendum, perhaps while they are in their polling booths.
