Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've been very interested in the stats, but I'm about to give up since the OECD/Heritage Foundation numbers differ from what is on the Eurostat pages.

Eurostat has gov't worker pay at 29.5 billion, or 33% of the budget. The IMF says gov't worker pay and pensions is 75%. And yet the OECD numbers diverge.
