The technology will enable people who are desperate for political power to choose the high-ranking Cabinet position with the shortest queue.

Conservative Party chiefs hope that the device will ease some pressure on Theresa May by sending people with little talent towards the Brexit Party, where they can be reach the top more quickly.

‘This is a great example of the type of innovation which should be offered to every Conservative MP as part of my long-term career plan,’ he said. Mr Hancock has championed the use of NHS technology in a bid to make himself more appealing to younger voters.

The new app will show challengers for the Prime Minister position which Cabinet positions there is the shortest wait for. For example, when Jeremy Hunt confuses China with Japan, an alert will be sent out to Conservative MPs to let them know it is the right time to make a speech on Britain’s relations with the outside world.

It will also provide tips on how to subtly shoehorn pitches to be Prime Minister into every speech.

At the same time, Mr Hancock launched an app for finding the A&E with the shortest waiting times.
