WELL this is awkward.

Former PM adviser turned political commentator Peta Credlin left TV host Paul Murray throwing rapidly to the break when she unleashed on a live Sky News panel, suggesting she knew more about the inner workings of the Liberal party than anyone else present.

"You're all piss and wind," she said, gesturing at fellow-panellists Laura Jayes, former Labor adviser Nicholas Reece and Murray on his show Paul Murray Live.

Credlin fired up when political reporter Jayes floated a suggestion that Immigration minister Peter Dutton was tipped to be the next Liberal leader.

Credlin was having none of it.

"Can I just be really frank here," she interrupted. "Journos, journos, journos ... and a Labor outsider. Nobody is going to tell you in the Liberal Party what is really going on.

"They are more likely, the conservatives, to tell me. And I think you are all p*** and wind. Because I tell you what ..."
It was at that point Murray had had enough.

"Thank you, let's take a break here on Paul Murray Live," he said, throwing to a break.

As the cameras stayed on the panel, he sipped from a mug. A wide shot showed the entire panel sitting uncomfortable, and stony-faced.
