From [https://www.morrissey-solo.com/threads/piece-of-his-mind-morrissey-interview-from-2014.148417/ A Piece Of His Mind - Morrissey Interview / Hotpress]:
'''HOT PRESS: A song on ''World Peace Is None Of Your Business'' that will definitely resonate with Irish fans is ‘[[Mention::Mountjoy]]’. What are your impressions of the place?'''<br>
MORRISSEY: The name is so perverse considering what it does to people. It doesn’t sound like what it is, whereas they knew exactly what they were doing when they named Strangeways prison in Manchester. With Mountjoy, well, the name’s so ridiculous, isn’t it? It’s a bit like calling the local maternity hospital St. Killmore’s.
'''Brendan Behan gets a namecheck on it. What’s your favourite work of his?'''<br>
You can’t go wrong in choosing anything, and I love people who dodge all the gender-imperative rubbish that society torments us all with. I love the fact that he didn’t think that heterosexuality resolved anything at all, meaning, I assume, that he didn’t think it was enough just to be heterosexual. You read him and you are immediately convinced that the rest of the world is suffering a mass mental illness. I love writers like that.
