Where will base rates be in six months?

Last week the Bank of England cut interest rates by 1.5 percentage points to 3%. The idea is to stimulate the economy, making borrowing cheaper and saving less desirable, to encourage people to spend.

Where do you THINK the base rate will be in May '09 (to the nearest half point)?

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
