Conservative vacactioned while people lost their jobs.

Impolitical: Prorogation politics while unemployment and bankruptcies soared
What's becoming even more clear in hindsight, the fact that the Conservative government, facing a political challenge of its own making, went on a prorogation vacation for two months at what is now proving to have been an epically bad moment.

Two thirds of the electorate wanted parliament to immediately deal with the economic issues of the day, but, instead, the Conservatives prorogued parliament and went on vacation for 2 months. Now we are seeing the results of putting off immediate action. Sure there would have been some losses regardless, but shutting down parliament when the country needed it most was a very irresponsible thing to do.
