Assuming that the lever broke off at the pivot point, you should be able to pull out the plug fairly easily as it should not be being compressed by the action of the lever, it should be possible to push it out from below using a piece of dowel rod (not a screwdriver or chisel.....), if necessary tapping it with a rubber mallet (the dowel rod).
Once out, replacing the lever and pivot should be feasible - it is not thick so perhaps a dressmakers pin would suffice and could be bent to hold it in place, ideally clipping off the point after putting it through and bending it. The force is only applied when the lever is pushed flat.
Hope that suggestion proves more economic than buying a new one.
If it is the rod through the bung that has failed it may be possible to make up a new rod from stainless steel, but that would require a pivot hole to be drilled accurately through it.....
If the lever itself has broken at the pivot point, it would not be so easy to sort out IMO, so a new one may be the only answer - sorry...
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
