Brummie debate for the Queen.

THE Queen was today opening Parliament - not at Westminster but in Birmingham, where children have their own talking shop.

Meanwhile, accompanying the Queen on her nationwide Golden Jubilee tour, the Duke of Edinburgh was keeping a date with a robot.

The Queen was opening Birmingham's Millennium Point, a pounds 114-million centre of technology and entertainment, where the Young People's Parliament was debating "Made in Brum" or what it is like to be a Brummie.

Philip was visiting Millennium Point's University of Central England Technology Innovation Centre, creators of a robot programmed to shake his hand.
