[python-uk] Python Platform Developer - Counter Terrorism

The treasury places internal fraud detection and money-laundering detection
responsibilities on financial organisations (hence your bank asking you
three items proving your identify and then refusing to open an account when
you only have two).

Part of the justification for this anti money laundering regulation is
terrorism prevention. I get the impression much of this "terrorist funding"
may have historically taken the form of wealthy individuals making large
charitable donations to slightly dubious charitable organisations. Thinks
things like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NORAID and the IRA.

My understanding is that python/numpy/pandas is a common choice for this
type of activity due to:

 i. It being batch processing / offline, hence reduced performance
ii. High productivity of python for ad-hoc queries
