Ms Abbott also defended comments she made backing the IRA in the 1980s as she said her “afro and some of her views” had disappeared since then.
Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, the host said: “In your career in the House of Commons you voted again and again around 30 times against anti terrorist legislation for different reasons.
“It was 34 years ago. I had a rather splendid afro at the time. I don’t have the same hairstyle and I don’t have the same views. It is 34 years on, the hairstyle is gone, and some of the views are gone.”
“We’ve all moved on in 34 years, haven’t you Andrew?” she asked when pressed if she regretted what she said about the IRA”.
