Costs?

BBC NEWS | UK | Fuel protest costs treasury 2bn yearly

The chancellor's decision to cave in to the fuel protest four years ago is costing the government 2 billion a year, according to a Treasury source.

This "costs" as in money the Treasury hasn't mulct from the peasants and has left in their pockets. Outragous really that people are allowed to keep any money to spend according to their own silly whims when the Treasury could spend it all so much better.
Next headline will be:
"The chancellor's decision not to tax the air we breathe is costing the government 20 billion a year, according to a Treasury source."

And after the Civil Contingencies Bill becomes law, there will be no more protests, so the government will "save" all that money.

I feel safer already.
