Selling confidence by creating uncertainty

Here is a brochure showing how the State-backed cartel tries to create uncertainty in suppliers that don’t pay for its services.  This is a sort of uncertainty that cannot be measured.  It enables the cartel’s members to sell “confidence” to the unwary.

The EC mandates a ritual to calculate uncertainty for technical measurements. UKAS enforces it, but neither the uncertainty of suppliers who don’t pay the accreditation tax nor the confidence allegedly provided by accreditation can be measured in this case.

It’s funny when you think about it.
