Forget about that trip that indicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich wanted to make to England.
Blagojevich withdrew his request Tuesday to travel to Oxford to speak at the venerable Oxford Union, a "speaking society" that's previously drawn a host of big-name celebrities, ranging from Mother Teresa to O.J. Simpson.
Blagojevich lawyer Sheldon Sorosky said the trip -- which would have required the approval of the judge overseeing the ousted former governor's corruption case -- would have had to be next week and that Blagojevich decided he wouldn't be ready to make the trip by then.
"Even if the judge had allowed him to go, he couldn't get it all together," Sorosky said. "He didn't even know if his passport was expired."
Sorosky added that Blagojevich likely would have had to make it a quick trip.
"It's not like he could have gone to London for two days. We got the feeling it was like the guy who gets out of jail to go to the dentist downtown -- you go, you come back," Sorosky said.
Blagojevich's retrial is scheduled to begin April 20.
