Diane Abbott explicitly backed victory for the IRA in an interview with a pro-republican journal, The Sunday Times has found.

Abbott, who will become home secretary if Labour wins the election, said in the 1984 interview that Ireland “is our struggle — every defeat of the British state is a victory for all of us. A defeat in Northern Ireland would be a defeat indeed.”

The interview was found during research by The Sunday Times in Irish and republican archives. Reading this worries me,why would you wish to represent the British people with these views?
