are these border decisions change so quickly at the whim of any political tension?

Also, In the case of Netherlands, the Sheet says YES,...

Re: Schengen visa after Brexit

I suspect that you would need a Schengen visa to travel to the EU now. Who requires or does not require a Schengen visa is determined by the person's citizenship, not the country of issue of the Travel Document. While the UK was a part of the EU, UK issued travel documents were likely recognised by...
