Isn't it time we dump the monarchies? The British monarchy is the worst bunch of f-ups and louses around and yet they live in rich opulence and thumb their noses at their subjects and the world in general. Its like how stupid is the general public to allow these farces to continue?

No. You are wrong, and there is proof of it, too.

1. Norway
2. Denmark
3. Sweden
4. Australia
5. New Zealand
6. Canada
7. Finland
8. The Netherlands
9. Switzerland
10. Ireland

Note the number of monarchies in the top ten happiest/wealthiest countries in the world as listed in the thread above this one. Norway, Denmark and Sweden are all monarchies. So is the Netherlands. Australia and New Zealand share the British Queen, as does Canada to some extent, and the Province of Northern Ireland.

That's eight out of ten, Mister.

Good point
