State buildings were painted in party colours under the coalition

Dear Editor,
So, flying of party flags, as the ruling party holds its congress, has brought out the ire of the Opposition.
When the Opposition was in Government, the painting of state the coalition colours outside of election periods, State House and Office of the President come to mind, even when it was pointed out this was against established protocol was not seen as insulting nor was there any condemnation then from those crying foul now.
This act was seen as preserving party paramountcy over the State. The same as a previous act where a party flag was flown above the premises of a state neutral institution. So, what’s the huge cry about now?
