Whether things are advantageous or disadvantageous depends on who you are, what your stance on Brexit is, and how you feel about particular implementations of democracy.

What the suspension does is give parliament much less time to scrutinise the decisions of Boris Johnson and the cabinet, which makes it far easier to force through a no deal Brexit. Some would see this as good, as it means a faster way of delivering the result of the referendum. Others see it as a dangerous subversion of democracy to implement the worst possible form of brexit.

In effect: Democracy has been subverted to avoid the whims of a democratically elected House of Commons who could've potentially reversed the result of a direct democratic process. Democracy is cancelled in order to deliver err... democracy, which we voted on to stop the EU subverting our parliamentary democracy.... which Boris is subverting.

If that was confusing, that's because it is.
