Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Witnessing the UK turning into a failed state is is not the interest of the EU countries: we're all on the same continent, even those of us living on islands.

A no-deal Brexit would be disastrous for many EU countries, starting with Ireland, but not only. Even with the negotiated deal, the EU27 will be weaker overall.

As Tusk and Juncker (and frankly, anyone with an IQ above room temperature) recognized from the start of A50 notification, is that Brexit would be a lose-lose event, and the negotiated deal is mainly damage control.
