The University of Liverpool Labour Society insinuated the Queen should be murdered in a tweet and people are outraged

They were tweeting to celebrate ‘Regicide Day’

Earlier today, the University of Liverpool Labour Society tweeted insinuating that they wanted the Queen to be executed.

They were tweeting in celebration of 'Regicide Day', which refers to the execution of monarch Charles I 369 years ago.

They followed this with 'We did it once, we can do it again.'

The society have since deleted the tweet, but you can see a screenshot here.

The society went on to tweet an apology, claiming it to be "tongue and cheek".
