編按：《金融時報》亞洲新聞編輯、香港外國記者會 (FCC) 副主席馬凱 (Victor Mallet) ，被入境署拒絕工作簽證續期申請，外間質疑這是與早前主持民族黨午餐會引起，是打壓新聞自由之舉。 Evan 認為事件已顯示香港已撤底地改變，馬凱為新聞自由而作的行為不單是不被接受，更會被懲罰。

The news that the Hong Kong authorities refused to renew a working visa for Financial Times Asia editor Victor Mallet has deservedly caught the headlines not only in Hong Kong but around the world. Questions will be raised in the UK parliament and statements will be made by the relevant government departments. Academics, journalists and other China-watchers are twittering privately.
