    Discovery 4 Re: Is it my fault- Discovery 4 in hospital.

    But oily deposits in my opinion should be cleaned up asap, as they can mask leaks. You don't need water , just a cloth/waster.

    There are widespread claims that electoral commission made serious 'mistakes' in the counting of the votes. One of the demonstrators' requests is for the chair of the commission to step down.
