No, we shouldnt do it because of immigrants, we should do it because monarchy in general is archaic. It never made sense as a form of government. Not now, not 500 years ago or 1500 years ago. The idea that a person becomes head of state just because they happened to be born into the right family is just flat out stupid.
Now as for the f*cking off part. You don't have to like my opinion and can oppose it, but you cant dictate who can or cannot live here based on whether or not you like or agree with their opinion.

Yeah it isnt going to happen anytime soon but it'd be nice if it happened in my lifetime.

Not sure if the law would support that. We'll see.
