Can you spot the mistakes?

Geoff Meade's story from PA News has a number of errors. Can you spot them? Here's a clue for the biggest: Sandra doesn't work in Brussels.

Last-Ditch Attempt to Win Approval for EU Commissioners
Frantic last-minute efforts were going on in Strasbourg tonight to stop MEPs voting out the new team of European Commissioners.
[...]
All eyes were on Liberal Democrat MEPs, also deeply split on what to do. Their leader, Graham Watson, indicated he would back the new Commission, but admitted he could not guarantee the votes of his fellow Liberal Democrats.
[...]
Scottish National Party Euro MPs Ian Hudghton and Alyn Smith and Plaid Cymru’s Jill Evans also said they would be voting against the new Commission.

Liberal Democrat MEPs Sandra Gidley and Sara Ludford will too, in protest at Mr Buttiglione’s views on women.

Ms Gidley said: “His views that women are only there to have children and that the family should only be protected by the man are intolerant and discriminatory. His actions make him unfit to hold the post of EU Commissioner for Freedom, Security and Justice.”
