Qld labour day march has festive spirit, but will be hit by drought
If anyone believes a drought in the state of Queensland could hamper the event of the festive season, it's Pauline Hanson.
The member for Griffith has been hammering home the message that any effort to make Christmas special will be a massive disaster.
"There's the drought in Queensland," she said in an audio commentary released earlier this month.
"It's worse than it has ever been before.
"We are going to have a severe drought â€” it's going to be worse than any other year.
"That has happened before in the Northern Territory."
But what about the state's agricultural sector, which relies heavily on the Queensland Government's water allocation for farming?
As The Courier-Mail has previously reported, farmers in the central Queensland region saw an improvement in yields in 2014, due in part to the arrival of irrigation water.
But Mr Hanson's comments suggest that will not be the case in the weeks ahead.
The state government has announced plans to expand the water allocation for some rural households â€” which is currently based only on the use of surface water for irrigation â€” to ensure sufficient water is available on Christmas Eve.
However, the government says they plan to use it throughout the winter to "contribute" to the water allocation.
If you live in an agricultural community which depends on the Government's water allocation, this will mean your monthly bill is significantly more expensive, since it is now more expensive than ever to have sufficient surface water for irrigating your crops.

"We will spend a minimum of $3,900 a month on irrigation on Christmas Eve, with extra money of $2,800 being available in July and August for families who are currently without irrigation, providing they wish to use it," said the Northern Australia Watershed Management Authority.
"The allocation will be for a full year.
"If you live in an agricultural community which depends on the Government's water allocation, this will mean your monthly bill is significantly more expensive, since it is now more expensive than ever to have sufficient surface water for irrigating your crops."
Mr McAlpine estimates the additional cost per head of household could increase by up to three hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
"The difference is going to go on to pay for the extra irrigation money which people will be going into to buy other things, even in other parts of Australia," he said.
"I think you can reasonably predict that, by the time the water is available, at least 90 per cent of farmers who will have to pay will be getting at least five-sevenths of that allocatio

What should you know about a house before you buy it?
1) It should not be expensive for you to live in
The house you decide to buy, when you start looking, should not be expensive for you to live in.
Why not? When you first decide to buy a house, the first question that comes to mind is "how much do I owe?". The answer to this question is usually in the tens of thousands or even tens of millions of dollars. If your salary is in excess of 30 times the household income or more, then you need a major investment which is not available right now and which could only happen if you sell the property you bought in the past.
If you have money today (or maybe if you have a significant savings in case you sell the house you just bought in the last month), then you should invest in a property that is expected to go up in value in the next few years, not buy one that is already sitting empty in the middle of an alley where some old lady sleeps in fear of falling off the roof. This might sound strange and expensive, but remember, a house with an appraised value of over $100,000 will have a much higher risk of being sold in the next 12 months than one with less than $50,000 as it is possible to sell it in a very short time period (10 to 15 days if you get permission from the landlady) and your deposit will not be guaranteed.
This means it is better to invest in a property that is not in a great hurry and is just on the verge of a realisation. Also, your own salary is in need of some investment and that's why you need to do a lot of research on the property before buying it. In the end, it is better not to get a deal for a house that you just bought in the last month. However, if you don't have the money, then you should not worry too much.
2) What exactly will it cost you?
As I mentioned previously, you should pay close attention to all terms and conditions of a house before buying it. You may also look into other things such as a property insurance policy or property taxes. Always ask the seller your personal opinion before doing the purchase before investing, and read carefully before selling the property. The seller's opinion might also provide a better deal than what you will get on your first visit to this house, but it should still be considered before deciding to sell your house.
Some houses with the greatest interest are those with the highest amount of equity. The reason for this is the fact that you can always use the equity in the house for any future purchases.
When I first bought a house, I was sure that my house was not worth it a
