Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know where you draw that inference from my diary. At the very least, the UK under Johnson and the EU will drift further apart, with the prospect of a comprehensive free trade deal becoming ever more remote and plenty of recriminations all around as to why that might be the case.  

However if insecure elites need scapegoats to blame for their own failings, the EU/UK falling out should come in handy. After all, that has been the chief function of the EU within UK political discourse for the past 45 years.

No doubt the EU will still be to blame for the UK elites own failing long after the UK has ceased membership. Quite what the EU owes the UK after Brexit is less than clear - except in the imaginations of self entitled Brexiteers, who appear to believe the EU won't be able to manage without the UK.
