Hello, everyone

Could you please help me out?

Consider this sentence: Such behaviour we cannot tolerate any longer. This construction is referred to in the linguistic literature as a "topic-comment" structure: such behaviour is the central topic about which we make a comment later on in the sentence. Which of the following options do you find the best? Are there any differences (in formality, in meaning) between the adverbs in bold below? Any other alternative?

(1) Such behaviour is the central topic about which we make a comment later on in the sentence.
(2) Such behaviour is the central topic about which we make a comment subsequently in the sentence.
(3) Such behaviour is the central topic about which we make a comment immediately in the sentence.

Thank you
