Confirm if you will

Is President of the Police Association Brian Rix, named in the OPI police inquiry, married to Shirley Hardy Rix, aunt of Marieke Hardy, blogger, tv/radio presenter, newspaper writer?

If so, the Hardy family, the most famous being Frank Hardy, author of Power Without Glory, continue a fine old tradition of controversy.

Could have totally the wrong end of the tree limb of course but I think not.

    Shirley and Brian went on a very long motorcycle ride together in 2003:

    Golvan Arts Management: Shirley Hardy-Rix
    Aussies Overland - About Us
    Brian Rix and Shirley Hardy-Rix: a conversation :: ABC Queensland

    I do recall hearing Shirley's early morning reports with Red Symons on wireless during the overland trip.

  2. I too recall her recounting the tale on the wireless. It took me a while to work out all the connections.

    Thanks for links.
