On the absolutely vital essential necessity of it all

Holding terrorist suspects for 42 days without charge is not only "necessary" but "vital" and "essential to tackling growing extremism" and on and on, though such is its importance that it "may never actually be used", you understand.
We've heard the same kind of urgent rhetoric before, of course most notably over the creation of human animal hybrid embryos.
Contemporary life must be really bad if we have to be on a constant state of alert against depredation, disease and terrorism and if ever crazier measures are deemed necessary, vital and essential in tackling them.
