Can someone explain to me the economical reason for this phenomenon?

In the UK at the moment the cost of everything seems to go up. Whether it be rent, food, fuel etc. but peoples' salaries seem to stay pretty much the same. What is this in terms of economics?

    cost always goes up. But wages can stagnate/stall.

    It's called inflation. Since the UK has 8billion Pound Sterling more in the country after Brexit. So the government tries to keep promises of spending and spending. But the trade talks with the EU and elsewhere have not gone through even a single shot. No new investment in the UK right now. And of course, no raise, no bonus. Even Nissan, which has gone back to Japan, has denied the plan to increase investment in the UK again. But all in all, we need to support Boris. There is no alternative, anymore.

    Brexit.

    Too bad Brits didn't ask this question more before voting in the referendum.
