Trevor Beattie, co-founder of Beattie McGuinness Bungay, along with 99 others, signed a letter meant to counter that written by 103 executives that asked voters to consider the Conservative's economic policy, The Guardian reported.

The Labour letter was signed by individuals from all walks of life, from businessmen and nurses to writers and a host of lower-paid workers. Some signatories had even signed the Comservative letter beforehand.

“We come from all walks of life, this is what Britain looks like,” the letter read.

The fundamental purpose of the letter was to ask voters to determine whether they felt the country should focus on higher paid individuals, or people across the working board.

Other big-name signatories included writer Susie Orbach and designer Wayne Hemingway.
