this is not a standard or normal prorogation.

It’s one of the longest for decades and it represents an act of executive fiat,

Mr. Johnson is planning to wind up the Brexit issue by the end of October. Many fear that the exit from the EU may worsen the UK’s economy further.

On the other hand, the legislators are demanding to publicize all the communications by the British Prime minister over no-deal Brexit. This includes mail conversations and text messages.
