Ewan Hoyle is #3 list candidate for Glasgow Region in the 2016 Scottish Parliament elections.
Ewan was born and brought up in the South side of the city, attending Shawlands Academy before going on to study Zoology at the University of Glasgow. Ewan has additionally gained an MSc in Neuroscience from the Institute of Psychiatry in London, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Policy on his return to the University of Glasgow as a mature student.
Speaking about the Liberal Democrats he says:
“I've always been interested in the potential for political activity to transform people's lives for the better. I joined the Lib Dems in 2008 because they seemed like decent, open-minded people with a more honest approach and a deep respect for the evidence of what actually works. This stood in contrast with Labour's habit to say whatever seems necessary to gain votes.”
In attending Liberal Democrat conferences, I always come away with renewed faith that a better society is achievable, and a great pride in my welcoming, compassionate and intellectually rigorous party.”
As a Liberal Democrat member Ewan has made major contributions to the development of the party's drug policy and mental health policy, and has spoken with passion about many other issues, including student maintenance funding and isolation in old age.
