Mr Watson said on Monday that his party had been “afraid to tell the truth” about the benefits of staying in the bloc, in a seeming jab at Jeremy Corbyn, whose position is much more Eurosceptic.He added that there was still time to reverse the result of the 2016 Brexit referendum. “Pro-European is who we are and who we have always been,” he said in a speech at the Centre for European Reform, a think-tank. “Our members are Remain. Our values are Remain. Our hearts are Remain.”
