Departure 4: ROD QUANTOCK

ROD QUANTOCK is an institution of the Melbourne comedy scene whose father happened to have been a tram conductor. He easily finds his feet and sharp words of wit on a moving tram.

So which way is a random tramload of passengers swinging on the eve of a State election? Rod Quantock roams the tram and the decision-making processes of those aboard to see who is a millionaire in their dreams, who is educated and independant, who's got allegiances where and who just cannot decide and doesn't want to know. As it turned out Rod's sample result said a Labor party win, a Liberal party improved margin, and the Greens with the balance of power. Much liked it happened in the booths the next day. Maybe elections should be held on trams?
