Reread the OP. We're talking about something other than the "permanent government," i.e., the civil service that does not change from one admin to the next -- think Sir Humphrey Applebee always butting heads with Jim Hacker -- Applebee is the "permanent government," but he does not always get his way. Deep State would be if Applebee could keep bills off the floor of the Commons.
