Justification of the "tired light" (or "slowed light") hypothesis:

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-11-scientists-vacuum.html
"In fact, the vacuum is full of various particles that are
continuously fluctuating in and out of existence. They appear, exist
for a brief moment and then disappear again. Since their existence is
so fleeting, they are usually referred to as virtual particles."

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-researchers-create-light-from-almost.html
"The thinking goes that in any vacuum, virtual particles come into
existence and then disappear on a constant ongoing basis; and they do
so in waves. The Casimir effect proposes that if two very tiny mirrors
were to be placed very close together; close enough that the distance
between them would be smaller than the length of some of the virtual
waves, a force would be created as the number of particles outside of
the space between the mirrors grows higher than the number that exists
between them, causing a pull on the mirrors, dragging them closer
together."

If virtual particles can exert a force on mirrors, it is reasonable to
assume that they can exert a force on travelling photons thereby
decreasing their energy (speed):

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-06-physics-einstein.html
"Yet quantum theory suggests that space should be grainy at the
smallest scales, like sand on a beach. (...) According to
calculations, the tiny grains would affect the way that gamma rays
travel through space."

For the moment the final conclusion:

"Hubble redshift due to decreased speed of light; static, not
expanding, universe"

is prevented by crimestop:

George Orwell: "Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as
though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It
includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive
logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are
inimical to Ingsoc, and of being bored or repelled by any train of
thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction.
Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity."
