CLASS A NUMPTY; CONS CAUGHT WITH BANNED MOBILES Thug's Facebook page boasts he'll go back to dealing heroin EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: Marion Scott

A dumb prison inmate boasted on Facebook that he planned to return to drug-dealing on his release.

Violent thug David Blakey, 25, told friends that he planned to peddle "kit" and "green" - slang for heroin and cannabis.

And now Blakey, who had been due for release within weeks, is being investigated by prison authorities at Saughton jail in Edinburgh.

He used a mobile phone to post his barely literate series of messages. And having a mobile behind bars can carry an extra two-year jail sentence.

Blakey, who was jailed for 12 months last year for a cowardly attack on a 64-year-old neighbour, wrote in a message: "Gd or bad graft lol am going to do what a used to do... mite as well eazy money bro.

"Delete this msg bro... it was kit ma boy am going bk to do it, that am green."

Using the nickname Deebo, he also moaned that the final month until his release was taking "forever".

Blakey posted photos of himself to show off his muscles, bulked up in the prison gym, and gloated about watching boxing matches on TV.

Other posts say that Blakey can't sleep and ask who is still awake so he can chat.

When a friend said they were eating pasta, he posted: "Tell u what cheesy pasta is sounding gd right now am starving for it.

"Am making mine in the kettle thats how mad i am lol talk about home made stuff well it cant be better than that hahaha."

Tory MSP John Lamont last night demanded a crackdown to stop inmates using social networking sites and mobile phones.

He said: "The public perception of prison is inmates playing video games, watching television and participating in pool tournaments with each other.

"Now we learn even the most brutal of thugs is allowed to brag about his future ventures on Facebook. Jail is supposed to be a punishment, not an extension of someone's social life."

Blakey was previously jailed for three years and four months for biting off a stranger's ear.

Crime victims and politicians were outraged in February when the Sunday Mail exposed how killers were using Facebook in jail.

Scottish Prison Service bosses promised a crackdown at the time.

Yesterday, an SPS spokesman said of Blakey: "Prison officers have acted to remove this individual from Facebook and we are investigating.

"We're always very keen to hear from anyone with any information of breaches of this type so we can take immediate action.

"Having a mobile phone in prison is an offence and we always take the matter very seriously."
