Scotland - SNP govt push for very rapid implementation of independence if they win the referendum to separate from the UK

The Scottish Government has published a document entitle Scotland's Future: from the Referendum to Independence and a Written Constitution.
A paper describing Scotland’s transition to an independent country following a ‘Yes’ vote in the referendum and the process by which an independent Scotland could develop a written constitution
This describes and advocates a headlong rush to independence, one that endangers the operation of regulated markets, including telecommunications.

It is almost impossible that the necessary legislation, new policies, regulatory authority, appellate systems and parliamentary oversight could be designed and put in place between October 2014 and March 2016, the proposed date of independence. These are all essential to comply with the EU acquis communitaire and to ensure the proper continuity of market operations.

See a conference paper on this topic.
