Thought to involve amputations
How can it be, "thought" to involve amputations? It is either there or it is not. Can't he tell??

The article in the Guardian is a knock-off from a 'world exclussive' hate piece "interview" in the Mirror.
Follow this link for the original. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/allnews/content_objectid=14042696_method=full_siteid=50143_headline=-MY%2DHELL%2DIN%2DCAMP%2DX%2DRAY-name_page.html
The fast answer is, he said it was "unneccessarly high" amputations; they took too much off.
As a word of explanation, 'over there', if half the foot needs to be cut off, that is all they cut off, and then the person can hobble around as best they can.
Our doctors routinely take the entire foot in that case, so a prosthetic can be fitted. You can't "replace" half a foot with a prothesis; at least not yet, that I'm aware of.
Hope that helps. BTW, you DO know it is all BS, I hope. Of course you do; you are on FR.
