"The EU referendum is the biggest democratic decision of our time, and will have far-reaching consequences for generations to come," the letter says, The Telegraph reports.

"The referendum forces us to look in the mirror and ask ourselves: what kind of nation do we want to be? Are we outward-looking and open to working with others to achieve more? Or do we close ourselves off from our friends and neighbors at a time of increasing global uncertainty?"
