Watch Peta Credlin’s angry election night tirade: TV host slams Liberal Party for ‘losing SO well’ as Daniel Andrews wins a third term, as he lists why he lost his side of politics

  • Election called in Victorian state for Daniel Andrews and Labor
  • Conservative Sky News presenter Peta Credlin unleashed a tirade against the Liberal Party
  • She said there was ‘a lot to work with’ but liberals ‘comfortable’ with losing

Sky News Conservative commentator Peta Credlin unleashed a furious blast at Victoria’s Liberal Party, which suffers a convincing defeat to Daniel Andrews’ Labor Party.

Major television networks, including ABC’s respected election guru Antony Green, called the Victorian election for Labor shortly after 8pm on Saturday, just two hours after polls closed.

Credlin, who was once touted as a potential challenger to Andrews at the polls, complained that the party was getting ‘too comfortable’ with the fact that he was in opposition and lost the election despite having ‘a lot’ with what to work against the prime minister.

Credlin, the former chief of staff to Liberal Prime Minister Tony Abbott, said the party was being destroyed by the “factional boss” and criticized senior MPs for telling federal Liberals to resist as they “don’t understand Victory”.

‘In fact?! Because you lose very well at the state level in areas where we don’t lose at the federal level.’

Sky News presenter Peta Credlin (pictured left) blamed the “factional boss” and the Liberals for “being comfortable in opposition” for their defeat in Saturday’s Victorian election.

Ms Credlin said Victorian liberals must be brave enough to clear up the “dead wood” that has been around for 20 years and “achieved everything”.

“You can see in seats like Hastings and Nepean if you put fresh blood on the ballot people will support it.”

“The Liberal Party in Victoria is not sure what it stands for and I have to say it has become very, very comfortable in the Opposition,” Credlin said.

“He has lost faith in himself that he can take on Labor and win.”

“You’re up against Dan Andrews and you can see from the changes (against Labour) that some people are grumpy.”

“There’s a lot to work with.”

There have been only a few wins for the Liberals so far, including former tennis ace Sam Groth, 35, claiming the Nepean fringe seat for the Liberals.

Former Greg Hunt staffer Briony Hutton nearly knocked out well-known Strictly Ballroom actor and Dancing With the Stars host Paul Mercurio in Hastings.

ABC election analyst Antony Green has called for at least 48 seats for Labour. The party needed 45 to secure a majority government.

The Greens also appear poised to make significant gains in Saturday’s election.

They retained the Brunswick, Melbourne, Prahran seats, were projected to pick up Northcote and Richmond and were ahead at Pascoe Vale as of 9:30pm, according to ABC.

Outgoing Labor MP and former minister Lisa Neville said it was an extraordinary victory for Andrews.

“He has achieved something that no one thought he could,” he told the Sky election panel.
