VIM Syntastic - set currently active checker

The last three times I’ve installed VIM onto a fresh machine I’ve spent a good few brain cycles working out how to get syntastic to use pylint as a currently active checker.

The solution is actually in the README.md but I always seem to be blind to it.

You need to add this to your .vimrc file

 let g:syntastic_python_checkers=['pyflakes']
