After the Big Bang is it Space-Time that expands or the distances between the things in it?

Something I continue to have trouble getting my head round is the idea that there are bits of the universe that are so far apart (and accelerating away from each other) that there hasn't been enough time since the Big Bang for light to travel between them. So there's a kind of quantum foam of light cones that can't interact. But if nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, then how did these bits of stuff get further apart than light could travel in the available time?  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_expansion tries to explain this and I think I'm beginning to get it. It also helpfully points out that lots of highly qualified physicist have trouble with understanding this as well so it's not just me! There are bits of it that still feel like handwavium. In particular it feels a bit like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copenhagen_interpretation in that it's only difficult to think about because you're treating the equations as objective reality. It's all very well to say that it's space-time that's expanding not the stuff in it but, but,

What do we want?
Evidence based medicine.

When do we want it?
After full, transparent publication of all trial results both future and historical, peer review and without being encumbered by long term patents.

And we want our governments to subsidise this for the good of society as a whole and to properly enforce the rules with realistic penalties. And without the market being hopelessly skewed by mandated oligopolies bought with high priced lobbying. And without government money being wasted on high priced stockpiles that do nothing. (like Tamiflu: here's looking at you, Roche).

As the article points out, EU regulations pushing for greater transparency on clinical trials are a good thing, but not if they ignore historical results and are never enforced.

It's hard to imagine a better fairy-tale villain than a big pharma company. There's something undeniably sinister about these vast, faceless titans with their unfathomable methods and international reach; so much so that it's sometimes an effort to remember that, actually, they're the ones who ...
