A political quiz question

 Which political party has in the last week done both the following things?

1) Demanded that one of their opponents resign for going on holiday in August, and

2) Criticised their opponents for calling a meeting in August on the grounds that everyone is entitled to take a holiday in August?

Answer: the Labour party

They called last week for the resignation of the Foreign secretary because he was on holiday abroad at the time of the fall of the Afghan government and the evacuation crisis,

But today at Cumbria County Council they criticised the Conservatives for calling a meeting in August on the basis that "everyone is entitled to a holiday" in August and even suggested that it was disgraceful to call a meeting in that month because everyone knows, apparently, that the leader of the council goes away for a month at this time of year.
